Vee Carve question

(geoff suter) #1

I am new to the vee carve and I am looking to carve a logo in wood. When I setup the tool path for it, it will run carve lines where it shouldn’t be through the center.


Is this an issue with the setup? how can I make sure it does not put carve through the center of the logo where there shouldn’t be.
I have tried selecting each line individually but no matter what I try it keeps looking as shown in the photo.

thanks in advanced.

Please see the 3D preview — I don’t believe this is doing what you want due to overlapping paths — see: Creating designs from elements for an example of a problem caused by that.

Unfortunately, Carbide Create won’t depth limit, see https://wiki.shapeoko.com/index.php/Carbide_Create_Basics#Clearing_area_around_drawing and the linked page: V carve + inside pocket? for work-arounds.
